PRIME LOCATION WITH LOVELY OPEN VIEW. A well appointed detached family house occupying a prime position on the fringe of this sought after North Leeds suburb adjoining open green belt countryside to the rear within enclosed private grounds of some 1/5 of an acre.
The sale of 4 Stairfoot Lane offers a rare opportunity to acquire a family home in what is almost a semi-rural setting bordering open countryside and yet within some 5 miles of Leeds city centre. Furthermore, plans were approved for a two storey extension some 10 years ago and whilst this has since lapsed there is clearly scope to enlarge the property further subject to planning approval. Both the en suite to the master bedroom and house bathroom have only recently been completely refirbished. Alwoodley is regarded as being one of North Leeds’s most exclusive residential locations for those wishing to access principal Yorkshire centres including those of Leeds, Harrogate and York. There are also daily amenities available within walking distance on King Lane, including a Tesco mini market, pharmacy, bakery and a Sainsbury’s supermarket within 2 miles drive together with the David Lloyd Leisure Centre. Leeds Grammar School is also virtually 5 minutes away.
The ground floor is approached through an entrance vestibule into a central reception hallway with an archway leading through to a guest cloakroom and W/C, beyond which is a fitted utility room with a range of high gloss wall and base units, integrated wine fridge and access to the rear garden. The sitting room has a fireplace with beech surround, marble interior and living flame gas fire. Glazed double doors open through into the conservatory with underfloor heating and a sliding door opening into the rear garden. The adjoining study also has underfloor heating and matching sliding doors overlooking the rear garden and adjoining countryside beyond. There is a separate dining room with windows on two sides. The modernised breakfast kitchen has underfloor heating, a comprehensive range of high gloss wall and base units complimented by Corian preparation surfaces, integrated appliances including a 4 ring gas hob with wok burner, extractor, fan assisted oven and microwave, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. There is a slate floor and sliding double glazed door opening out into the rear garden.
The first floor is approached off a galleried landing and comprises a principal bedroom with a full length range of full height wardrobes with sliding doors, lovely views across the adjoining open countryside, a recently updated fully tiled en suite wet room with vanity unit and W/C. There are then two additional double bedrooms and recently updated fully tiled house bathroom comprising enclosed bath with shower above, vanity wash hand basin, W/C and recessed cabinets with mirrored doors. There is a fully boarded roof space which could be converted to provide further bedroom accommodation subject to planning. AGENTS NOTE Two planning applications to extend the house in the past have been successful although have since lapsed.
Outside, the property is approached through double electric entrance gates and a stone set driveway into a turning head providing ample parking for several cars. The former detached single garage now comprises a garden/store room with electric roller door behind which, with separate access, is a playroom/home office with electric panel radiators.
The front garden is completely enclosed with low boundary walls and ornate wrought iron railings, large shaped lawn, well stocked flower borders and a wealth of established specimen trees. The rear garden again is completely enclosed providing a very safe environment for a young family and comprising shaped lawn, well stocked borders, stone set terrace ideal for outside entertaining and views over the adjoining open greenbelt countryside.
